The actor-turned-producer is currently building a house for himself in Goa.
He told The Times of India: "I like doing interiors, it's kind of a hobby. I have hired a contractor for my apartment and right at the end I hired an architect to help me out. So I like getting my hands dirty.
"Going out finding tiles, finding samples for colours, matching the tiles and colour together, so it's something that I enjoy.
"I am going a bit eco-friendly, water harvesting, water treatment, on-side solar panels, I am going to use all this. My taste is very minimalistic, I don't like flashy stuff."
Deol's most recent project is the troubled zombie wedding comedy Rock the Shaadi.
He has claimed that the film faces serious budget problems.
Producer Siddarth Jain has dismissed suggestions that he is to blame for any delay on the film.
